at city hall. >> commissioner, mendoza. >> thank you. and i wanted to add, kind of my perspective on this as well. a lot of the conversation also and the presentations from the city acknowledged that this is not just a school district issue. but that this really was a city-wide issue that we needed to address jointly and collectively, and so that was really important. i think to acknowledge. and with regards to the memorandum of understanding, and also, we had talked about this mou, just a few months ago with the chief. and so the work hasn't quite started in terms of reviewing a former mou and trying to bring that altogether. but it was really great to hear the voice of the youth because there is some really challenging issues and i think that one of the things that we want to make sure that we do is include the youth in that memorandum when it does come through. >> could i ask that for the audience, when we reach a certain mou, can somebody say something about what it is? >> mou is a memorandum of understanding so it is an agreement between both parties. >> in this case to do wh

of them. so colleagues, commissioner mendoza? >> thank you. thank you so much and i appreciate the continued conversations that we have around a-g. i have to say when the board voted on this unanimously, it really made so much sense for all of us. because we were graduating our students without having options for them in terms of going on to college. and i think for me, this is more than just making sure that the kids get their a-g, but it's also spending time training our counselors, and our teachers, to ensure that they get the support that they need in order to really think about all of this. i know that we have had some fits and starts in implementing a-g, it's not an easy process to go through. we had to peel away some classs that kids really liked and had to get some class approved to be a-g. so i want to thank the efforts of school district as they have gone down this path. we're one of very few of handful of school districts that actually require a-g as a graduation requirement and i think it speaks to the board's desire to do better for all of our kids. and we're very
mendoza for their work on this issue and their presentation. thank you commissioner fewer for following up on the success rates of the credit recovery program. it's incredibly important that as requirements are increased that the district can provide resources to support them. their requirements are important to getting san francisco's young people to college, but we can't set them up to fail. i'm glad that the counselors will be having the meetings and i'm a little concerned that they won't do it by november 19th, seeing that we're in the midst of college application season. but hopefully, that will happen before the next school year. at the moment our joint education committee, which works with the student advisory council is working on a resolution addressing the achievement gap in san francisco at-large because we feel like this isn't just an issue of this one-time increase in requirements. if you look at the numbers, there are incredible disparities between communities and we think there needs to be long-term solutions to address the issues in our city's educational system. thank you

that this was hosted and that we've been able to move forward. i also want to acknowledge commissioners fewer, mendoza and maufus. i really appreciate the work that commissionerv mendoza has done to be able to help us do some things in terms of community based organizations and being able to advocate. i'm very happy to be able to consider commissioner fewer an ally and appreciate the comments that she made because in the words of pastor harris who just spoke, it's not going to really happen just with the school district or with the board of is ups. we have to engage the community and the parents and everyone. * sups. i think in terms of policy and making changes, we have to begin the dialogue here because you all sit in policy making body. with regard to the board of education and board of sups, i'd like to see -- hover is gone. in terms of institutional history and leveraging more, how that happened and maybe didn't happen or what was supposed to happen, really beginning to engage and have conversations around that, but beginning to drill down and actually have some movement. i think that it's impor
